[Bioperl-l] Bio::SeqFeature::Annotated and mandatory type checking

Dear all,

I'm trying to bring some of my code into compliance with the BioPerl  
1.5.2 and am running into some design decisions that I am unclear on.  
Can I ask why Bio::SeqFeature::Annotated enforces mandatory checking  
of the 'type' against SOFA? It seems to me that this should be  
optional behavior as is the case with the Bio::FeatureIO family. I'd  
be happy to write the patch if there is any agreement with me on this
